The Russians have a skill in writing apocalyptic nightmarish stories You only have to read the Strugatsky Brothers' Roadside Picnic or watch the film version Stalker Gansovsky's A Day of Wrath or watch Lopushansky's amazing Letters From A Dead Man to realise that they understand what it is to live on the edge of the abyssClaustrophobic dark cul de sacs of danger and terror Metro 2033 is a world of uncertainties and fear hung on the fringes between survival and death Criminals and refugees traders and mystics bullets used as currency fear and always uncertaintyArtyom our hero is asked to deliver an important message that could affect the survival of humankind in the subways On his way to the centre he is aided and hindered by a motley crew of individuals who reflect the chaos that reigns below The voyage is full of menace though moments of almost calm menace and surreality are not uncommonThere is one brief sortie to the surface that becomes an adrenalyn packed nightmare I never realised that you can read a book through your fingers as you wait for the horrors to leap out from the ruins and the darkThis is of course an Odyssey and our brave Ulysses has to strive through his labours as he comes face to face with the demons that litter his nightmare world distorted and turned inside out by humanity His is a noble task and he is aided by heroic figures heroes that could have stepped out of the ancient myths Yet uestions and doubts are raised constantly what sort of humanity is it that Artyom wants to save? and what nightmares come flowing down the dark tunnels of the Metro I really wanted to like this book Everything about it promised so much The setting is the Moscow metro system in the year 2033 Above ground it appears that humanity has been wiped out by nuclear war The survivors live entirely in the underground tunnel system; stations have evolved into microcosms of the old social and political systems of Russia The inhabitants are now into the second generation and Glukhovsky touches on some of the adaptive changes humans have undergone as a result of living in a lightless world believing themselves the last representatives of humanity Strange mutations have resulted from the nuclear devastation and frightening creatures are taking over the world above; some of them threaten life in the tunnel systems The premise is simply fascinating and begs for attention by the author But one of the main flaws of the book as I see it is that Glukhovsky simply does not pay enough attention to building a cohesive believable world and the promise in the premise is not fulfilled Glukhovsky's primary concern is with relating the adventures of his 'hero' Artyom a young man drawn ostensibly by chance into a strange uest to save the metro system The structure of the uest is aimless and ultimately lacks satisfcatory closure I struggled to remain engaged with Artyom and indeed the fate of the metro system About a uarter of the way through I simply stopped caring about what would happen to any of them The novel rushes to a close in the last ten pages after a build up of nearly 450 pages and these last few pages throw the whole book into a new light suddenly I saw how the novel could have been a rich critiue of modern humanity an exploration of the madness and futility of war and the destructiveness of anthropocentrism I am so disappointed it failedA factor that served only to exacerbate any issues I had with plot and character development was exacerbated by what is almost certainly a poor translation I am giving Glukhovsky himself the benefit of the doubt as I cannot read Russian and verify the uality of the original and some awful copy editing The only good news is that this novel has been adapted into a PC game – and I think the story material is eminently suited to it I actually bought the game and I am looking forward to exploring it Метро 2033 Metro 2033 Dmitry GlukhovskyMetro 2033 is a post apocalyptic science fiction novel by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky It is set in the Moscow Metro where the last survivors hide after a global nuclear holocaust It was published in 2005 in Russia and on March 28 2010 in the United States In 2013 a nuclear war occurred forcing a large amount of Moscow's surviving population to relocate to underground metro stations in search of refuge Eventually the communities settled in the underground train stations developed into independent states Soon factions emerged ranging from the independent peacekeepers the Rangers of the Order to the communist Red Line faction and the fascist Fourth Reich to the powerful factions such as Polis which contained the greatest military power and the most knowledge of the past and the Hanza regime which controlled the main ring of metro stations by its sheer economic power As these groups began to evolve the Red Line and the Fourth Reich uickly entered a state of war as both sought to destroy the other As the war raged the stations who refused to join either side were either demolished by the factions merged into the Hanza regime raided by criminal bandits or formed their own independent states Other stations were outright destroyed by animals mutated by the nuclear fallout While most of the stations were controlled by the 3 main factions some stations formed an independent alliances including the station VDNKh Exhibition Within that station the events of Metro 2033 unfold The protagonist of the novel is a 20 year old man named Artyom who was born before the nuclear holocaust He was saved from a horde of carnivorous rats that killed his mother and the inhabitants of his station as a baby by Sukhoi a military officer Sukhoi is now one of the authorities of VDNKh one of the stations in the Russian metro and has raised Artyom as his son Artyom spends his time on patrol in the tunnels and working in the mushroom factories Artyom meets a man named Hunter who is looking for Sukhoi The three meet and discuss the situation in VDNKh VDNKh is facing increasing attacks from mysterious creatures known as The Dark Ones who inspire terror throughout the station Hunter leaves but asks to speak to Artyom Artyom confesses that 10 years earlier he and his friend went to the surface at the neighbouring station Botanical Gardens They were unable to seal the exit after their visit and the Dark Ones have been using this entrance to the metro ever since Hunter tells Artyom that he intends to gather intel on the Dark Ones and in the event that he doesn't return Artyom must carry a message to a man named Melnik at Polis with news of the threat Feeling a sense of responsibility for the Dark Ones' attacks and seeking adventure Artyom accepts تاریخ نخستین خوانش از روز بیست و چهارم ماه ژوئن تا روز دهم ماه

this with meA guy walking in the streets of a post apocalyptic dead city when no one and nothing should be on the surface And then he notices these dark things walking slowly behind him He can`t turn around and shot any of them If he starts runing he`s dead and above his head in the sky he can hear this winged thing circling around looking for a preyNow what should he do?Some fascist bastards imprison him torture him And set him to hang in the next dayThe floor`d already slipped out from under him and the loop tightened from the weight of his bodyWhat should he do?That was just a small taste of what`s in that bookThe guy was literally creeping all the way of his journeyBut I admit itIt turned out that I`m not a bad slow reader as I thoughtbut take my adviceDon`t ever play a video game that has a novel you`re planing to readtrust meYou`ll live a lot longer DCan`t wait to read the next part of the seriesMy greetings from my post apocalyptic cairo ^^ Surprisingly monotonous novel Reading it it becomes obvious that postapocalyptic setting strange events and bizarre creatures are not enough for a good novel The structure is repetitive there is no overall development of main character's psyche except at the very end too late I'm afraid Events are arbitrary there are too many unnecessary descriptions of metro stations and reader looses himself in all the mentioned tunnels Women play no important role there is none except for some hysterical mother here and there Apparently in the future they can't carry weapons fight protect or be a community leader I take it for granted it is a SF novel but still there are many inconsistencies which could be easily avoided with a careful editing Welcome to the post apocalyptic world of Metro 2033 It’s a grim and depressing existence this This novel conveys a claustrophobic atmosphere rarely felt Everything in this underworld has a dreamy nightmarish uality about it Consider perpetual darkness except for signal fires and faint red emergency lighting at some stations And if you’re travelling don’t forget your pocket flashlightSo what’s the story? Well the apocalypse has come and gone Somebody pushed the button and only the few who made it to the underground metro survived They’re still there decades later unable to come out except for Stalkers who wear gas masks and protective gear Pockets of civilisation have formed at different stations each with their own politics religions and mythologiesBut there are things in the darkness and there are things in the outside world that want in Metro 2033 is a good idea and a fine example of Sci Fi Horror When it succeeds it succeeds well Unfortunately the reverse is also true when it stumblesConsThere is often a lot of dialogue that doesn’t seem relevant to the story The plot skips around so much and takes off on random tangents so often that the whole thing at times feels like an exercise in frustration There is a lot of political and philosophical meandering and although it’s sometimes interesting and relevant many times it’s not Characters sometimes behave totally inexplicably There are so many stations and factions that I found it difficult to separate them in my mind the map didn’t really help and eventually everything blurred together it’s all just one dark tunnel with a station attached The awkward sentence structuring and clumsy writing doesn’t help This seems to be at least partly attributable to translation issues but perhaps not limited to ProsNow the good news The story is filled with legends half truths and mythology which will keep you on your toes The mythical ualities reminded me of the The Gunslinger Metro 2033 also has its fair share of genuinely spooky moments It’s very atmospheric And yes it is actually pretty cool at timesNow the list of cons may seem longer than the list of pros but that’s only because I made a list of things that annoyed me as they popped up You should at least give this a try It’s a novel experience no pun intended ‘I’ve died’ he said ‘There is no me’And as straight as a cross tie he fell face down This is a cult classic dystopia that managed to catapult high despite originally being given away for free a little than a decade ago It's a testament of word of mouthI found myself curious even before having this recommended to me but I'm only now getting around to reading it For shame right? This is very much a Russian tale with everything that implies Post nuclear survival tale within the metro tunnels humanity becoming Morlocks and strange flying creatures preventing any egress Along with the heavy radiation but who's really counting that? ;The novel was very interesting in how the novel was nearly a traditional coming of age tale but than that I nearly had to stop at a regular basis because of how episodic it seemed too Maybe I should have I might have enjoyed it As it was we followed the main character from one part of the metro tunnel to another discovering strange belief systems that happen to be pretty much everything that we moderns know now Christians fascists satanists worm worshiping cannibals and of course capitalists were discovered with fresh unpolluted eyes The novel had a lot to say It was very ideal and idealism oriented Maybe it was just the utter feel of being disillusioned by all the lies that we humans keep telling ourselves and maybe it was that old Russian pragmatism at work but I thought this was both the novel's main strength and main weaknessMaybe I wasn't in the mood for it And maybe I've already had my fill of such classic translated Russian novels Either way I appreciated this novel while not entirely getting into itThat's not to say it wasn't full of great parts It refers to and pays homage to Roadside Picnic Stalkers and all The ending made up for almost all the slow parts that felt like kind of a slog All told I'd recommend this for fans of extremely well developed post apocalypse literature with a huge serving of what classic Russian literature is known for shovels and ideas The premise of Metro 2033 is excellent and the ultimate conclusion of the story the last 10 pages though treading on an overused SF trope could have added an excellent undercurrent to the plot Yet in between the opening and the ending there is over 400 pages of well nothing After introducing the setting the main character Artyom is sent on a uest by someone he just met for reasons which are not elaborated upon to the ultimate purpose of doingsomething That's a great way to start a journey isn't it?For the rest of the book Artyom simply wanders around the metro system tunnels and stations trying to get to his goal Every now and then he goes on rambling nearly incoherent philosophical rants about the nature of humanity presented with incredibly juvenile thinking as though it were written by a moody high schooler He meets people then they leave after a few pages And there doesn't seem to be any overall plot that ties it together other than his loosely defined uest To uote the book it just went on and onThis as a finished novel reads like a rough draft He rambles on for ages about Artyom's travels through the metro yet the motivation for his doing so seems sketchy at best until the last 10 pages Characters are barely developed and are then tossed aside as soon as they have any personality Locations have only minimal descriptions likely assuming that you're already familiar with what the Russian subway system looks like I shouldn't have to look things up on Google Images to understand what an author is talking about None of it manages to come together and form a cohesive world It's a large jumble of fragmented good ideas; and it seems the author had to include every single one of his good ideas without thinking about whether or not they were appropriate or useful to the narrative I also have a tough time buying into the idea of everything on the surface mutating into super monsters within a single generation after nuclear war This may be fantasy but COME ON At least give us a believable timelineI could have probably given this 2 stars expect for the fact that all of the good ideas the book presents are utterly wasted I've mentioned a few times how it uickly wraps up in about 10 pages and that's the problem the ideas in those 10 pages should have been everywhere else in the novel You can't have a compelling conclusion when there is no build up to it Simply stating This is what it was all about is the worst kind of lazy writing I was appalled at how wasteful this book was of its ideas characters setting and most importantly my timeAll this is without even mentioning the massive amount of typos grammatical errors wrong names and general sloppiness of the English translation Perhaps I should have played the video game version instead At least then I would have been able to kill things which is what I wanted to do upon finishing this novel Are you tired of stupid Young Adult books with stupid protagonists who are worried about who they should kiss rather than how to survive? Then this is for youReal survival real struggle and a very elaborated setting take Metro 2033 to new levels of things went wrong hereThis book won't try to babysit you so don't expect an easy read After reading Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro 2033 I felt compelled to offer a review Frankly it is the best post apocalyptic sci fi I have ever read While some things may get lost in translation and it has a lot of typos for me it did not detract from Artyom's epic struggle to reach Polis from the subway station of VDNKh and deliver the message that the dark ones are invading the station and the future of the entire metro population is at riskSet in the year 2033 it depicts mankind's struggle to survive in a Moscow subway system after nuclear bombs have destroyed the surface and contaminated the air resulting in the birth of a multitude of mutant monsters creating a life of constant fear and terror for the metro human pupulation There is a new species adapted to the radiation filled atmosphere intent on replacing mankindThe story operates on a number of different levels is tightly plotted very descriptive and real Lead protagonist Artyom is very believable as he analyzes the politics at work during his journey to try and save the future of mankindGlukhovsky criticizes Communism institutionalized religion cult worship man's inabilty to get along with his neighbours the futility of capitalism and the hopelessness of war I'm sure I'm missing a few Inside the small states organized at different metro stations the different control groups become a microcosm of our society almost an allegory of how as George Orwell put it absolute power corrupts absolutelyThe ending is a twist and a shocker that left me feeling empty and hollow for a few days afterwardsThis is a well written poignant and riveting work destined to become a timeless piece of literature that will be studied admired and critiued for many years to come
